I finally got the chance to stop by the Delacorte Theater for Shakespeare in the Park! There were plenty of staff, and everything from the box office to seating was very well organized. We had a great view of the stage!

Love that they went to an online lottery. Ive never gone before since you had to wait on long lines before to try an obtain tickets. Now you can do it at the connivence of your home. We saw the production of Hercules and it was fantastic. Its a great outdoor theater. Very comfortable seats and the sound system is excellent.

Public Works is the best!
Aug 2019
There is no more inspiring theater event in the world than Public Works' annual production. This year's Hecules is, as usual, wonderful. See it if you can!

We had the good fortune to have a friend who got us tickets to see" Much ado about Nothing" in June and it was fantastic, great actors, outdoors under the stars in Central Park. Definitely worth the effort to see the show. We had a great visit to New York City

Free theatre, usually excellent, long lines to get tickets
Jul 2018 • Family
Going to Shakespeare in the park is an all-day experience but well worth it if you have the time. Come early in the morning with friends and spend the time reading, talking, playing games, etc. Tickets distributed at noon. If the play is well reviewed you probably need to get on line before 9 am, earlier on weekends.

Each person on line can get two tickets, so half of your party needs to be waiting (and they don't let people join so you all should be there at the start).

Another way to go about it is to come on a somewhat rainy day and hope it clears up. When it looks like rain you can often show up at 11:45 and get tickets.

Shakespeare's Twelfth Night...Delacorte Theater , Central Park
Aug 2018 • Couples
This performance was INSANE, I cant remember a more enjoyable night of theater (so be it; Shakespeare, a musical and rain in an open air theater) Better then some shows I've paid Hundreds to attend. Thank You Joseph Papp for your grand vision of theater for all people. Artist-driven, radically inclusive, and fundamentally democratic. Your vision is a grand site to be seen today !
The Musical Adaptation of Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT in Central Park. Professional artists and two rotating ensembles of community members from all five boroughs will perform together on the Delacorte stage in this enchanting comedy about Viola, a young heroine who washes up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a man, is sent to court a countess, and falls in love with a Duke.

Featuring music and lyrics by critically-acclaimed songwriter Shaina Taub, this very special TWELFTH NIGHT is a unique partnership between two Public Theater programs that exemplify The Public’s commitment to radical inclusion. Oskar Eustis, The Public’s Artistic Director, and Kwame Kwei-Armah, incoming Artistic Director of London’s Young Vic, helm this unforgettable musical about love in all its many disguises.
WOW just WOW !!!!!!!!!

Magical even in a downpour

This is a tough ticket to get but so worth the experience. We saw Twelfth Night in the pouring rain and the cast was incredibly dynamic and talented.

Bittterly disapppointed with ticketing process
Jul 2018 • Family
People kept telling us we gave 50% chance while waiting for 2 hours to get the tickets and when we finally reached the box office we were told we will get 2 random tickets and just as we reached the window ..tickets finished..very inefficient process and too much mis information.

Not good for tourists,unless one has unlimited time to keep queing up, as we were told to go and stand now in a stand by line so waste whole day standing with no assurance of tickets .
better to watch in london or buy tickets
